» Risks of unsecure mobile printing

When employees print from mobile devices in the office, at home, or on the go, printing security becomes a whole new challenge.

Exposed data
In an unfamiliar environment, employees may attempt “workarounds” to print the documents they need. This includes emailing documents to unauthorized users, storing data on unprotected flash drives, using personal email accounts, or even attempting to install unauthorized printer software and drivers.

Unprotected prints
Documents printed to a new printer or in an unfamiliar area are often left at the printer, unmonitored, for long stretches of time until the employee can retrieve them. Sensitive documents could be read or inadvertently picked up by someone else.

In the increasingly mobile world of business, HP solutions can protect you from needless risk. Learn more with these helpful HP tools:

» Secure printing at home

Telecommuters can turn their home printers into a secure extension of the office printing fleet.

With VPN, telecommuters can have a safe way to securely access documents on the company network and print them on their home printing devices, all while staying behind their company’s firewall. That’s because the print drivers reside on secure HP cloud servers. And HP LaserJet Pro and Officejet Pro telecommuter solutions are designed to leverage the remote monitoring and management capabilities of HP Web Jetadmin software.
